Photo Challenge #7 / Pop of Colour

20190212ma_0302“Pretty in Pink” / Theme: Pop of Colour

A little about this photo…

There’s not a lot of colour this time of year. So, when the Christmas cactus decided to show off some coral pink blooms for Valentine’s Day, I decided this would fit nicely with the “Pop of Colour” prompt. (I guess it’s a Valentine cactus this year!)

Photo Challenge #6 / Rainy Day

20190206ma_0269“Coated in Ice” / Theme: Rainy Day

A little about this photo…

This is what happens on a rainy day in February… The temperature drops and the rain turns to ice. It’s certainly pretty! However, I’m glad I don’t have to be out on the roads in this weather. Just walking to take this photo was a slippery adventure.

Photo Challenge #3 / Natural Beauty

20190102ma_0145“Water Falling” / Theme: Natural Beauty

A little about this photo…

This photo makes me feel cold! (Maybe I’m just remembering how cold my hands were when I took this shot. It was the one day I forgot to bring gloves. Not a smart thing to do in January!) This “waterfall” is part of the old Welland Canal system. It’s no longer in use for its intended purpose. The “new” canal was moved years ago.

I love how that one leaf makes such a pretty pattern in the water. Natural beauty!

Photo Challenge #2 / Playtime

20190101ma_0087“Mary’s Suitcase” / Theme: Playtime

A little about this photo…

This suitcase holds good memories for me. It originally belonged to my mother and held her doll’s clothing. She kept the doll and gave it to my younger sister one year for Christmas. Ibeing the older and wiser sister (read: bossy)named the doll “Mary”. My sister didn’t complain. She was Mary’s mom. I was Mary’s aunt. And we had wonderful times!

I wish I had a pic of Mary herself, but alas, my sister has the doll. Somehow, I ended up with the suitcase… which is falling apart.

Photo Challenge #1 / Leading Lines

20190101ma_0057“At End of the Pier” / Theme: Leading Lines

A little about this photo…

One of my first photos of 2019! Went down to the lake on January 1st and captured this shot. Among many others. I had a hard time figuring out which photo to use and which prompt to start the year off with! Well… this is the one I chose. The lighthouse at the end of the pier.

In the summer, this place is packed with people. On a cold winter’s day, we had the place to ourselves. (This is Lake Ontario, by the way. If you look closely, you can see the city of Toronto off in the distance.)

2019 Photography Challenge

2019-weekly-pic

A whole new year is coming up. And that means another photography challenge with a whole new set of prompts.

Come join me, each Saturday, in posting a photo. Above is a list of the prompts to help inspire us. The order of the photos won’t matter. In other words, you don’t have to start at the top and move toward the end. For this challenge, you may pick any prompt on the list and start with that.

Bonus! If you count the number of prompts, you’ll find there are more prompts than necessary to complete the year. That’s because I find it a little easier to complete some prompts over others. So, if there’s one that’s really stumping you, no worries! You can skip it.

Want to join me? Please make sure to include the tag #2019picoftheweek so I can check out your posts! I’d love to see what kind of photos you come up with.

See you in the new year! 🙂
